Triumph Speedmaster vs Harley-Davidson 883 Iron vs Kawasaki VN900
The new £6,749 Triumph Speedmaster takes on the £6,699 Harley-Davidson
883 Iron and £7,000 Kawaski VN900 in our test of the middleweight
cruisers, that offer custom motorcycle styling without the inflated
pricetag and size of the bigger cruisers.
Surprisingly, they don't feel cheap and can almost offer the same
experience as their bigger custom brothers but for half the price. With the
Harley and Triumph you also buy in to the 'brand', whereas the Kawasaki
lacks kudos but makes up for it with the mean, pseudo hard tail styling,
with the hidden rear shock giving not only cleaner lines, but also better
ride quality than the others.

Triumph Thunderbird vs. the best of the rest
MCN has already discovered that although the new Triumph Thunderbird is a
great bike, it still can't tempt riders who have their hearts set on a
Harley. But how does it compare to the other cruiser competition?
Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport vs BMW R1200R
Moto Guzzi and BMW both now offer sportier roadster twins in the shape of
the new 1200 Sport and R1200R but is that where the similarities end?
Check out the video below to see what MCN's Road Test Editor, Phil West,
thought of the Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport and the BMW R1200R.

Vintage Triumph Hot Rod Motorcycle! On Two Wheels Ep. 42
On this episode of On Two Wheels, we get a behind the scenes look at
Champions Moto, a custom motorcycle, parts, and apparel company started by
Richard Varner in partnership with Terry Karges. Champions Moto teams up
with the legendary So-Cal Speed Shop to create a Hot Rod interpretation of
a street-able flat track race bike.
We take a look at the build process from design to fabrication to
completion and get to see first hand, one of the most beautiful
hand-crafted bikes we have ever come across.
On Two Wheels appears every other Wednesday on the new Motor Trend channel.

Hemi Buildup on a '55 Chevy Bel Air! - Roadkill Ep. 29
In Episode 8 of Roadkill we introduced you to the greatest engine swap
project ever—a Hemi into a 1955 Chevy Bel Air. Nearly two years later, we
finally get Mike Finnegan's Mopar-powered Tri-Five on the road, but not
without a few problems along the way. Blown head gaskets, frayed wires, and
severe sleep-deprivation are all overcome as Finnegan, Freiburger, and
friends push to get this polarizing project car running again in time for
an epic road trip.
The BlaspHEMI '55 Chevy rides on a Jim Meyer Racing Gasser tube chassis
with Viking coilover dampers and Firestone Cheater slicks out back. Up
front the car has a tubular straight axle, parallel leaf springs and tires
small enough to fit on a VW Bug. The rear axle is a John's Industries
9-inch with 5.43:1 gears. The Hemi began life as a 528ci Mopar crate
engine, which Finnegan rebuilt with a 0.030-inch overbore, ported aluminum
heads, and a Comp Cams solid roller cam. The mill is topped off with a
Hilborn stack injection system with EFI controlled by a FAST EFI ECU. An
Aeromotive Stealth fuel tank and pump provides the fuel while MSD provides
the spark. The engine is backed by a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual gearbox
with an American Powertrain installation kit and a twin-disc clutch. The
car was wired with a Speedwires kit and the guys built their own fenderwell
headers using parts from Hedman.
To save weight, the original steel front clip was swapped out for a
lightweight fiberglass tilt front end from Unlimited Products and the
windows were replaced with lexan parts from ProGlass. The rollcage is a
10-point arrangement built from chrome-moly steel and TIG welded to the
floor and frame. To save a ton of time, High Tech Auto Wraps covered the
car in flat black vinyl instead of paint while the last of the parts were
installed onto the car.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
